The Utah State School Board this month approved three new public charter schools — an all time annual low for the reform movement.
Two of the charters, Utah Connections Academy and Aspire Online Charter School, are online schools. They will both open in the fall of 2011. Good Foundations Academy, which will be located in Riverdale, will start offering classes in 2010. A fourth charter school, Baer Canyon High School for Sports and Medical Sciences, is still under scrutiny.
